Oww.. Canvas leather bitches

Post by Heuerville » Sat Jan 06, 2018 6:27 pm

I've spend the last 6 months looking for some cool new hides for my range..

This came in today from the tannery.. a leather hide that looks like genuine Army canvas.. sexy AF!!
Direct from the tannery, it's a little too shiny, so I've lightly distressed it and added some waxes/oils to tone it correctly..

If you hadn’t told me, I would’ve sworn that was a photo of a swatch of canvas.

That’s awesome looking.

What does “hides for my range” mean, if you can share?

I've been looking for new leather hides for my range (selection) of straps - (Not range, as in shooting range! :grin: )

I'll try to get some pics next week on a finished strap on a Speedy!

A slightly closer shot, without my old iPhone 4s getting blurry!!..
